Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has received a five-game suspension without pay for “escalating an on-court altercation” with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday.
Draymond was one of three players ejected after a fight during the in-season tournament game.
But, the suspension is a result of Draymond Green “forcibly grabbing” Rudy Gobert around the neck “in an unsportsmanlike and dangerous manner,” NBA executive vice president Joe Dumars said in a statement.
Dumars added Green’s history of unsportsmanlike conduct played a role in the length of the suspension.
Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels were also ejected.
Thompson, McDaniels, and Rudy Gobert were fined $25,000 for their roles in the incident.
Watch what happened below.
As Joe Dumars said, Draymond Green’s NBA CarFax Report is pretty sketchy and I’m honestly shocked he’s still in the league.
Of course, people took to their Twitter timelines to weigh in on Draymond’s latest shenanigans and some folks have gone as far as to put together compilation videos of the NBA star’s violations on the court.
Peep the tweets below.
Do you think the five-game suspension without pay is far for Draymond Green or did he get off easy?
